Are You Stressed Out and Dreaming Weird Stuff?

I know that I have nightmares, and also many dreams that run parallel to other dreams I have had. I multi-task through the day, and that usually makes me tense at the end of the day as well, thinking that I haven't accomplished everything I need to, or want to. This link below, I found to be interesting, as it addresses several dream patterns and thought processes we go through when sleeping, and a solution to our sometimes unfounded, fears. I hope you enjoy this link as much as I did. LOL...I dream of flying (without a plane), and it's so much fun. However, when I think in the day time about flying, I get so petrified, and I just KNOW if I had to get on a plane, I'd have to be given a tranquilizer LMAO....Also I dream a lot of high towers. (I don't know about this one, but it could have something to do with my fear of heights). The uncanny thing about fear of heights though, is that I was a tomboy growing up, and LOVED to climb trees. (still do). So, don't try to corner me, I just might run up a tree! LOL!! Then there is the old dream of being back in high school. awful would that be to go back to school at my age with teenagers??? I already have raised 3 and one is still home. I wouldn't want to have to go to school with other teens though. I loved high school, and still maintain my friendships with many from grade school, on up. Anyway...back to the dream. I dream that I am late to a class, or that I can't find the right building, although I was always early to class, knew exactly where I had to be all the time. Good Grief...when I was in high school, it was a boarding school, and we would walk from one side of the campus to the other side, and had a very short period of time to get there. Maybe, just maybe, I am projecting the many things I have to accomplish every day into the same thought process of when I was in high school, and feeling stressed?? (like not going to accomplish everything, and I am usually a perfectionist on some things). I'd love to hear from my readers, to see what kind of dreams they have, and what they think the meanings are.

Deb, you said, “I dream of flying (without a plane)”. Do you mean just by flapping your arms like a bird? I used to have dreams like that but I haven’t dreamed that in a looooooong time. My dreams now are a bit more exotic. :-)

yes! I do dream of flying like that LOL! I also dream that the bad peeps are coming to get me, it's dark outside, and I see them coming down the road in a car. I try to fly, but I can't. I think that this is part of the stress factor. I used to dream this a lot in the past, but now I dream it more frequently, since I have some internet stalkers. I'm not really frightened for myself, as much as I am for my youngest son, whom they have threatened to come visit.
